    • Synopsis
    • For the first time, after 50 years of movie making, Claude Chabrol joins forces with Gérard Depardieu in a suspenseful and original psychological thriller.
      It’s no ordinary holiday for police captain Paul Bellamy and his wife Françoise at their summer home in southern France. Things get complicated with the arrival of Paul’s half-brother, Jacques, a petty adventurer with a drinking problem, jealous of Paul’s domestic happiness.
      On top of it all, Bellamy is contacted by Noël Gentil, a man on the run, hiding out in a local motel, caught between his wife and a demanding mistress. Gentil fears he may have killed a man but refuses to admit whom. Walled in by anxiety and approximations, he greatly intrigues Bellamy.
      Working on intuition, Bellamy sets out alone in an investigation to help a possible murderer. But he finds it easier to aid a stranger rather than a member of his very own family…
